Why Village Atheists and News Media Shouldn’t Pretend to be Exegetes
So, I’m sure you’ve all read aaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllll about how horrible Kim Davis is by now, right? The news media, all your leftist friends, and the like, are telling you so. Of course, if it were one of their leftist paragons _you_ were talking about – that would be terrible, terrible irrelevancy. In their case, right now, it is okay – because reasons. To be disclosed later, or something. Or at least Salon is telling you so.
In the land of “I have a liberal arts degree, therefore SCIENCE”, this sort of thing probably makes sense.

Refuting The Priests of Molech
I’m sure many of you reading this have noticed that there are a few recurring themes in the coverage of the Planned Parenthood fiasco. This post is an attempt to deal with those themes and show you how to respond to them. These are the major categories:
1) It’s a Hoax
2) The video was edited
3) The means were dishonest
4) Look at all the good we do, and those horrible people over there want to take that away!
There are major issues with each of these, but we’ll give examples of each, so you can see how they …
A Carnival of Faulty Planned Parenthood Rebuttals
So, you’ve probably seen, or at least heard of the Planned Parenthood videos by now, right? Sure you have. I’m also sure you’ve seen the storms of controversy flying around them, too.
It’s a Hoax: By now, I’m sure you’ve seen the absolute avalanche of stories with “hoax” in the title, the lede, or tucked conspicuously into a significant paragraph. Right? Watch. Click this.
Now, your first thought is going to be “Man, EVERYONE is calling it a hoax!” Why not? A bunch of the big names you read seem to be on that list! Well, first off, that is …
Nothing is Pure
To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed. – Titus 1:15-16
As I’m sure many of you have been following, Planned Parenthood has been getting lambasted on social media in the aftermath of the sting operation by Center for Medical Progress. This is not to discuss the video in question – although the casual brutality of Deborah Nucatola, …
The Modern Molech
Molech still receives sacrifices. Now they call the altar the blood of the unborn runs down by the name “women’s health”, and “reproductive rights.” Except for the 26 million women whose health and reproductive rights were terminated – with extreme prejudice. So, tell me, folks. Are you prepared to say that these are persons being murdered? If not, what are they? Sub-persons? (Or unpersons? Hmm.) Where have we heard that argument before?
But let’s grant that for the sake of argument, for those of you still unconvinced. If they are sub-human, are they animals? If they are animals, why would …
Love is Love and Other Tautologies
Love is love, right? That’s the tagline for the modern movement which seeks to redefine what, precisely, love is. There are a multitude of problems with this idea, of course, but let’s take one specific instance.
It begins, predictably, with “love has no gender.” It proceeds to “love has no race.” Next, “love has no disability.” Next up is “love has no age.” We’ll get back to that in a minute. Next up is “love has no religion.” It ends with “love has no labels.”
There’s a problem with this progression, though. The video is subtitled “Love has no Labels” …
